Existing literature on hotels' environmental management practices provided the theoretical underpinning for the study. Using the stratified sampling method, a sample of 52 hotel managers from the various categories of hotels in region completed questionnaires on the study. A test on the hypothesis using the chi-square method supported the fact that larger hotels (Three to five star) were at the forefront of adoption and practice of environmental management practices. Also, for the hotels with environmental policies, such policies were geared towards achieving safe, clean and healthy environments.
